Christel Abrenio

Christel Abrenio took her first ever dance class in kindergarten and was welcomed into the world of music and dance at Valverde School of Performing Arts at 8 years old. She trained in all the classes VSPA had to offer from ballet and hip hop to choir and private voice lessons. Christel was immersed in the performing arts and as that passion grew, she became a member of Valverde’s performing troupe, Expressions, where they performed at venues like the LA County Fair, Disneyland, and Knott’s Berry Farm. In high school, she was a member of the varsity dance team, women’s choir, and dance club. Christel’s love for the performing arts continued after high school where she trained with a few collegiate dance teams. She has taught classes, been featured in concept videos, and competed and showcased across the United States. Coming full circle, Christel is blessed to have the opportunity to share her experiences, knowledge, and love for dance with the VSPA family she grew up in.
